I am slowly working on a novel, which needs to morph into some sort of finished product in the next year (I'm trying to finish up my MFA). Two babies in just over a year have slowed, or derailed, my writing process. I just recently started a blog, which is about my life with my family. As the novel progresses, the two might converge. www.papoe.typepad.com

I'm new to this group, but it's great to find other Mom writers out there. My specialty is childrens books. I love them. I can't stop writing them, my problem is getting them published. Any advice?

Hi Ladies:
I am going to have a child development/behavioral specialist as a guest expert on my site...do you have any questions/challenges related to your kids you'd like me to pose to her? I would need the ages of the kids and as much description as possible. Please email me at swatibharteey@rcn.com

Thanks!

Great idea, Jillian, to blog about my early morning mishaps. Funnily enough, I did just that but forgot to post it! :) It's up now at http://yinyangmommy.wordpress.com

I too keep a dream journal and it's been a regular font of inspiration for me over the years. I love the cycle thing too you mentioned~~I'll now have to pay closer attention to my creative outbursts!

Have a great morning, ladies. I'll be dropping by your blogs this week to see what's up.

I've decided that this is a hard phase of life to be completely scheduled and predictable with my writing. All three of my kids are under the age of ten...my husband and I both work a total of three seasonal jobs, and from one season to the next, my ability to be consistent changes.

I think there are some key insights among those you all listed:

Set goals (both large and small)
Do what you can on both the small and big levels to chip away at the goals you set.
Reevaluate how you are doing often, and tweak as needed
Stay confident in your ability and go head first into the doors that open.
If you think you are standing there knocking for too long...sometimes you need to move and find an open window instead.
Slow down enough to know your "cycles" of inspiration and tap into the moments you feel inspired.
Carry a notebook (everywhere!)
And pay attention to those dreams and nightmares...there is much to be learned there.

Plus, and this is key, find a group of women who are doing the same things you are so that you know you are never alone in your struggle.

Peryl - so true - so true - so true! I did good today, I got a shower!
Jillian - the cycle thing is funny, but it got me seriously thinking... thanks guys!

Hi Jillian: we have gone twice to Disney and I have to admit that I LOVE IT! I am a marketers dream so I fall for all of it...from Mickey to Tinker Bell...sing me up! This year's break was at DC. Though you just made me realize that when I do these reviews, instead of just getting the book free, perhaps I should ask for more - ha! By the way, I may be grumpy over the next 10 days - I am revising my Introduction for my book AGAIN!! Grrr...

Thank you so much everyone for the wonderful encouragement and kind words!

I'm trying to keep up with everyone's discussions and blog posts, but right now my parents are in town and it's Spring Break so if I don't get back to you right away, I promise I will as soon as I can.


Have a great week everyone!
